STUCK is a video made in 360, projected as a crystal ball hovering above the busy streets of Kensington Gardens. It was shown as part of Third Thursdays - an arts, music and culture programme in the centre of Brighton - in April 2022
Look up and you catch sight of a young woman inside a child’s bedroom, testing and retracing the space. Her movements are cyclical, constrained, repetitive, frustrated. She spins, rocks and stretches.The sense of scale is distorted through the crystal ball; she is childlike, playful, but also an adult and the video acts like a lens into her hidden domestic experience. She is quite literally stuck within the walls of the room.
